Video: Microsoft executive talks Windows 7

In a video interview, corporate VP Mike Nash talks about some of the thinking that has gone into the successor to Windows Vista.

On Monday, I had a chance to talk with Windows VP Mike Nash about Microsoft's approach with Windows 7. In addition to his comments for this article , I also did a brief video interview with him that is posted below.

Nash's overall summary of Windows 7 was this:

"The focus is on making sure the things you do (today) are easier and that the things you always wanted to do are possible," he said. "There's a lot of work we've done to just make things easier and faster."

Of course, users will be the ultimate judge of whether Microsoft meets this goal. It set out many of the same objectives with Vista.
